Every producer of high-end goods, be it cell phones, footwear, clothes or furniture, has to be aware of such phenomenon as ‘fashion dictate’. Trends of fashion come and go really quickly: what seems modish today, may look old-fashioned in a year and ridiculously outdated in a couple of years. So, many brands adopt the approach that could be called ‘follow the trends or die’. They strive to notice tendencies as soon as they emerge and make the most of them before they go.

It exercises quite the opposite approach to product design: this brand focuses on timeless beauty and high quality. This tactic has proved to be successful for the brand and perfect for its customers. That is why, it’s quite natural for Bellavista Collection to have bestsellers that are about a decade old.
